_
"This Doubleplay Bluetooth transmitter is an excellent solution to the problem of more than one person wanting to enjoy a movie or music that is playing on only one device."

"Yet there is still the problem of pairing more than one device, but not with this Bluetooth Transmitter Splitter you can now listen to your music on two headphones at a time."

Connection

Connection:
"If the second headphone fails to connect, the connection to the first headphone is lost and a reset procedure is required."

_
"In addition, if it loses connections it is hard to reconnect, it requires unplug, re-plug to reset it."
_
"-i knocked off one star here, because it's almost as if this device remembers the order of headsets connected to it, and takes forever to connect to the the 2nd headphones, if the first isn't connecting as well."
_
"Works well connecting to both BT helmets."
_
"Connectivity is pretty strong that I can leave my living room and go to the kitchen and still hear the audio."
_

_
"It connected to both of my Harman Kardon Speakers with ease."
_
"The sound quality was just as well as it was when connected directly to the computer, but I had no interference or static even if I bumped the transmitter or 3.5mm cable."

Power

Power:
"My only complaint is that the USB cord to power it is too short."

_
"However, aptX unfortunately requires more computational power and a side effect of that was that there was a noticable delay of the video an audio syncing."
_
"My projector has a USB port on it, which powers the transmitter ON when the projector turns on, which is great."
_
"the bigger deal is that you need to figure out how to hook it up to the audio out of your TV AND the USB power in a manner that is easy to take off and on when you decide to use it..."
_
"Once you have power, pairing to each device is pretty simple and easy to follow along with the instructions."
